Microdermabrasion is a common skin rejuvenation procedure that a number of beauty Salons offer due to the positive results it can produce. This is without the hassle of having to go ‘under the knife’ nor the possible side effects that the likes of Botox or threading produces. However, it’s a light procedure and shouldn’t be seen as a superior alternative to the likes of a face lift for example.
The way the method works is by exfoliating your skin in order to remove the dead layer which in turns helps increase it’s radiance as well as clears up clogged pores. It’s a common means of improving the skin of patients who suffer from melasma and have uneven patchy skin.
Microdermabrasion can be done by going to a reputable skin clinic or else by purchasing one online. The main difference between the at home one’s versus the professional “beauty clinic” ones is that; the more professional microdermabrasion machines tend to be able to penetrate deeper into the skin. Due to the fact these people are experts in what they do they can afford the added risk.
However, with the improvement of technology there has been an improvement in the microdermabrasion home kits with the line between the two getting slimmer and slimmer thanks to the technological advances. The advantage of this is that it can save you a lot of money over time whilst giving you the freedom to do it in your own home.
Although another difference between getting a professional ‘near me’ microdermabrasion versus one at your home is that the one’s in skin/beauty clinics require you to go there once or twice every one to two months. Whereas, the one’s at home could require multiple applications every week or so. This in turn could be more time consuming than it’s worth. Although as mentioned above, with the advance of technologies this will be a rarer problem to come across.
A ‘Microderm’ microdermabrasion treatment isn’t that painful and the most common side effects of the treatment is that it’ll leave your skin feeling red and perhaps a bit raw/sensitive after the procedure.
